Default Mesh Quality in Gambit using Pro E Imports!!

Andrew Fsadni is on a distinguished road
I am working on a project to simulate the flow of water through a water deaerator. This was modeled with Pro E Wildfire Version 2 and subsequently I imported intop Gambit as a STEP file and deleted the redundant volumes.

I then merged faces (Virtual - Tolerance with min angle 160) and created size functions to improve the mesh quality.

However, even though the model looks meshed, upon inspection of the mesh, the total number of elements is equal to 0.

I am not too sure what is happeening. Would appreciate if someone can help please.
